Educational Performance of the United States — An International Perspective

This report summarizes international data on the educational performance and ranking of the 35 countries that are members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. The data for a variety of metrics indicates that the ranking of the United States among these countries is dropping, especially since about 2000, on those metrics where time-series data are available. Other countries have surpassed the educational performance of the United States on key measures of high school graduation and attainment, college enrollment, completion and attainment. In the global human capital economy that emerged around 2000, the absolute and relative educational performance of the United States portends economic challenges ahead. The lower than average educational performance of the United States may also help explain growing inequality of income, wealth, life expectancy and other measures of human welfare that are closely associated with education.
